49ers vs. Packers: Who Has the Edge at Every Position?

For the second time in as many years, the San Francisco 49ers will meet the Green Bay Packers in the playoffs.

Last year's prolific battle, in the divisional round of the playoffs, was a cat and mouse game between Packers defensive coordinator Dom Capers and 49ers offensive coordinator Greg Roman. As most of you know, Roman and quarterback Colin Kaepernick outsmarted and outran Capers' defense. 

Yet, Capers is hoping this year's playoff game between the two teams is different. Based on the regular-season meeting earlier on in the year, there's a good chance Kaepernick will be looking to exploit Green Bay's defense through the air. Wide receiver Michael Crabtree is back in the mix, and Anquan Boldin has carried San Francisco's passing game the entire season. 

Undoubtedly, this will be a hard-fought battle until the end between two pretty evenly matched teams. With injuries considered, let's break down which team has the edge at each position heading into this week's wild-card matchup.
